10th Annual History Graduate Student Conference, “Metamorphosis: Transformations of Borders, Identity, and Place”

Taliaferro Hall
Friday, February 27, 2015 - 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM

The University of Maryland, College Park's HGSA, in cooperation with the Nathan and Jeanette Miller Center for Historical Studies, will hold its 10th Annual History Graduate Student Conference on Friday, February 27, 2015 in Taliaferro Hall (TLF), with the theme “Metamorphosis: Transformations of Borders, Identity, and Place.”

 

Metamorphosis is a historical dynamic that forms, sustains, contests, and transforms borders, identities, and places. As daily coverage of the many ongoing global conflicts reminds us, boundaries and borders continue to be the objects of struggle, anxiety, and transgression. The formations and contestations of identities intersect with these issues of boundaries, as do the ways humans interact with places, both physical and conceptual.

The conference begins with breakfast at 8:30 on the second floor of Taliaferro Hall and will feature panels throughout the day on race, Native-Settler relations, borders, and identity, with a keynote address by Prof. Pier M. Larson of Johns Hopkins University. Students and faculty are encouraged to attend.
